/usr/sbin is a symlink to /usr/bin, so there should be no problem for mbpfan.service to call /usr/sbin/mbpfan.

prepare() patches the Makefile to install into usr/bin because files have to be installed into real directories, not symlinks.

The prepare() function changes the executable install directory to /usr/bin but the mbpfan.service file installed by the package() function still expects it /usr/sbin

Thank you for the suggestions xiota. I have updated the PKGBUILD accordingly.

Thanks for reporting. I've updated the PKGBUILD to install mbpfan.depend.conf.

Hi, thanks for your work!

Mentioned in, please add one line install -Dm644 "mbpfan.depend.conf" "$pkgdir/lib/modules-load.d/mbpfan.depend.conf" to the package() function

Did some cleanup, such as removing mbpfan.install and installing mbpfan.8.gz, as suggested by localscope (thank you).

I've adopted this package and updated the PKGBUILD to use https:// instead of git://, to fix the issue with Github no longer supporting the unauthenticated git protocol.

I get following error:

fatal: remote error: The unauthenticated git protocol on port 9418 is no longer supported. Please see for more information.

Seems like the PKGBUILD has to adapted to use 'https://' instead of 'git://'

The latest commit moved tests out of the program and placed them into a separate binary to be used after building rather than after installation. Can you please update the PKGBUILD to remove mbpfan.install since it was only used for running those tests.

Also, can you install mbpfan.8.gz to /usr/share/man/man8 inside of package().
